Transit Oriented Development Advocate

If you want to know about station area planning (SAP) and/or transit oriented development (TOD), please take a look at the Portland case study and lessons learned, Seattle area programs and projects, the TOD fable, smart growth jokes, and the TOD resource links. “TOD” has several meanings including transit oriented design, development or district.

Portland TOD Case Study, Westside MAX Light Rail Project — These documents are based on TOD papers and presentations given by Henry S. Markus, AICP, at the Rail-Volution national conferences in Portland 1998 and Dallas 1999; the American Planning Association national conference in Seattle 1999; and the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute in Denver 2000.
